Ariana Huffington, co-founder of The Huffington Post, has recently went viral and released a new book with her opinions on something so simple.
In a world of final exams, Starbucks and presidential candidates being in New York one day and California the next we have fallen away from what can be crucial to our strength and vitality in the world–sleep.
In her must read book: The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time, Huffington writes, “We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis and this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, is nothing short of a sleep revolution. Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives.”
In the video above, she says, “The dilution of our civilization is that because most successful people have been successful from getting less sleep, we think that losing sleep is the only way to do it. However, the truth is that people are successful because of their talent, gifts and passion. I think that people will be able to navigate their lives much more effectively with less sacrifice if we prioritize our own well-being.”
She says further, “This is really about leadership. Leadership is seeing the ice berg before it hits the Titanic.”
Remember in this fast-paced world to go get some valuable sleep every night so that you are recharged for the work you have to do the next day. If you want to see positive increases in school, work, relationships or your health you should go get some more sleep.
